Children's Book Review: Plant a Kiss
Plant a Kiss
Written by: Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Illustrated by: Peter H. Reynolds
Published by: HarperCollins, 2012
Little Miss planted a kiss . . .
One small act of love blooms into something bigger and more dazzling than Little Miss could have ever imagined in this epic journey about life, kindness, and giving.
New York Times bestselling author Amy Krouse Rosenthal and award-winning illustrator Peter H. Reynolds have teamed together for the first time, creating what may soon prove to be a perennial favorite.
* What happens when you plant a kiss? Author Amy Krouse Rosenthal takes us on a journey to find out. My daughter was immediately drawn to the glittery cover and asked if she could read this one to us. The text is short, written in mostly one, two, or three word sentences. I believe this is my first introduction to illustrator Peter H. Reynolds' work. The drawings are simple yet cute and I love the use of glitter in the story.
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
